Place a link somewhere on your site to the media player

<a href="linktoplayer.html" onclick="window.open(this.href,'player','width=320,height=32');return false">Media Player</a>
User initiated popups don't get blocked normally but automated popups like body onload usually get blocked. Another thing you can consider is the user of a top frame that is just high enough to hold the player that way as the user navigates the player is visible but still playing.

what i ended up doing and copying and pasting a code that someone posted in these forums and it works, just i can only play 1 song and was soon as you leave the index page the player stops.

I purchased wimpy mp3, and it just plain sucks, i cannot for the life of my figure it out, but embedding wmp was fairly simple, just need to tweek it a little so ppl viewing my site can get some variety.

site addy is http://www.xhopx.org/ check it out and maybe give me some ideas
